This Old Dog

Cancer therapy is like beating the dog with a stick to get rid of his fleas.  Anna Deavere Smith

I've been hit with the stick since May 14, 2010, the day I started chemo.

May.
June.
July.
August.
September.
Five months of chemo.

End of October.
Bilateral mastectomy.

End of November.
Started radiation.

It's December now.
Just a couple days left in this year.
Two weeks of radiation left.

I'm getting very very tired of the stick.

My fleas gone yet?

Woof.

I love it! Great post! And yes, your "fleas" are gone already. :)

Go ahead, let out a big sigh of relief. Because you, Debbie, are most definitely a survivor.
